Description: Although its limbs are broken off, this figure still retains its charm. The dancing girl, probably a temple dancer, is holding a garland. She has flowers in her hair and wears a number of necklaces, the longest of which is the badge of her profession. The pose is supple, the design pure, the proportions perfect. Black sandstone.
